Introducing our inspiring women of this week who is young, powerful and influential… Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan. I am pretty sure some of us are familiar with her. She is famous for the Taliban assassination attempt on her where she was shot and she survived! Allahu Akhbar.
Do you know she is called hero of the Pakistani? Not because she survived the shot but for her fight. A young activist who stands up for female education rights and has been actively engaged in activist work since 11 years old. A hero who represents the courage of all Pakistani.
In 2013, she wrote her first book, I am Malala, which took over the world. Not only it is a biography about her life but her book spoke the truth of the situation of Pakistan under the control of Taliban. The world knew about the suppression of Taliban militants because of her. Well, maybe from the news too hehe. But I knew about Taliban from her. She experienced and saw a lot at such a young age. Imagine, she never experience teen life because she was busy fighting for her life… for women and children’s right. She really is an inspiration to me.
Do you also know Malala made history as being the youngest Nobel Peace prize winner at the age of 17? She was awarded for her struggle against suppression of children and young children and for the right of all children for education. Masya Allah. Remember, she was supposed to be dead during the assassination but Allah let her live. He still want her to continue fighting for what she believes in. To inspire the world to be a better place.
We all can follow her footstep. We all can make the world a better place. No hate. Spreading my love to all of you.
**Also, last month she just released her latest book, Malala’s Magic Pencil. I would love to have a copy since I don’t have the first book in my collection (I only borrowed it from my cousin). Still waiting for Best Eastern to bring it in hehe. Make sure to grab a copy and I would love to know what you think about it.
